Not long after Stone and his ex-partner Dino make the acquaintance of Billy Bob-a smooth-talkin' Texan packing a wad of rare two-dollar bills-someone takes a shot at them. Against his better judgment, Stone offers Billy Bob a safe haven for the night but almost immediately regrets it. The slippery out-of-towner goes missing, and someone is found dead-in Stone's town house no less. Stone is now caught by a beautiful federal prosecutor and a love from his past, a con man with more aliases than hairs on his head, and a murder investigation that could ruin them all.

Laughably dumb, I have read or listened to many of Mr. Woods' books and have found them an easy, light read but predicable, yet unbelievable. Two-Dollar Bill is so bad it became funny. At one point the heartless CIA spook is trying to get our boy Stone to help him in a interrogation, Stone refuses because he's eating dinner at Elaine's, the spook tries to shoot him in the knee, misses, and then Stone says OK. They continue their relationship as if nothing happened! I listened to it on audiobook, and Narrator (Tony Roberts who is very good) could not keep the accents of the cockamamie characters straight. Stuart Woods thinks we all want to hear what it's like to have money and live like a rockstar but without a logical plot it is a farce.

This is a wonderful book on tape to have "on the road". 7 CD's consist in a very interesting and winding road of suspense and excitement. Just when things seem to calm down, another twist and turn creates more excitement. I enjoyed it very much and it made my long driving trip...just fly on by...

You have to meet Stone Barrington if you haven't before - he's a great character. Totally self absorbed, great intuitive leaps that often land him in the middle of murder and mayhem. There's enough humor in the book to keep you going from page to page.

Fans of Woods's ex-cop turned lawyer, Stone Barrington, will not be disappointed in this latest entry in the series. This time out, Stone becomes involved with a loud-talking Texan improbably named Billy Bob Barnstormer. It isn't long before Stone regrets ever being introduced to Billy Bob, especially when he leaves a dead body in Stone's guest room. But that is only the beginning of a tale that finds Stone, along with his best friend, Dino Bacchetti, following a twisted trail as they attempt to capture Billy Bob, who, it turns out, is much more dangerous than Stone could ever have imagined.

This time out, Stone becomes involved with a loud-talking Texan improbably named Billy Bob Barnstormer.

But that is only the beginning of a tale that finds Stone, along with his best friend, Dino Bacchetti, following a twisted trail as they attempt to capture Billy Bob, who, it turns out, is much more dangerous than Stone could ever have imagined. Narrator Roberts slips comfortably into his performance, bringing a nice, down-to-earth quality to his portrayal of Stone. He is equally at home in his characterizations of Stone's recurring circle of friends, giving each a distinct voice and personality. Roberts's slightly over the top, good old boy portrayal of Billy Bob works well, and he nicely shifts his performance as the likable, backwoods-sounding Texan changes and his true sociopathic tendencies rise to the surface.

I hadn't read Stuart Woods before. I'm convinced. Has all the story telling twists and whip-smart banter one could ask for. The Manhattan cop turned suave lawyer chasing down a briliant southern flim-flam man. The characters are well developed and not typical stock! So Billy-Bob, a filthy rich smooth talkin Texan, enters the picture and what develops is just great.

I was not impressed with this book. The storyline just went along, nothing real exciting or out of the ordinary. Just when the drama began to build, it seemed like the bottom must have fell out of Mr. Woods thoughts, because it was hum-drum.
If you are looking for a book to read, this one is fine. If you are looking for lots of excitement and a great storyline, this isn't the one for you.

Against his better judgement, Stone Barrington invites a new client to be his houseguest while in town. A lady friend of the client, Billy Bob Barnstormer, ends up dead in Stone's guest room and Billy Bob is nowhere to be found. It looks as though Stone will be a suspect in the murder, but as it turns out, that is the least of his problems. Billy Bob is a smooth talking Texas con man and he is out to ruin Stone and is always just one step ahead of Stone. Fast-moving and full of surprises!

Picking up a Stone Barrington novel is like visiting an old friend. Namely, a slick, slightly upper class friend who has almost everything.
Two Dollar Bill introduces a character named Bullit, who is a rich investor from Texas. Stone asks for Bullit to stay at his house, and the next morning, a call girl winds up dead in Stone's guest room.
From there, Stone is hurled into figuring out who Bullit is, and what his scheme is, ending with a little suprise at the end.
All in all, a fast moving, engaging plot as one would suspect no less from a Stuart Woods Stone Barrington novel.
